“…psychological thriller full of cruelty, abuse and juicy twist, it will keep you on the edge of your seat and turning pages as the real story becomes clear.”
~ Under the Covers

A woman is kidnapped in December and for each day of the 12 days of Christmas he gives her a beautifully wrapped gift. Each gift reveals his sad and dark past, giving you an insight into his twisted motivations. But what happens when the 12th day of Christmas is over?

I’ve been trying to find Christmas books to read so I can get start to get into the holiday spirit, unfortunately my quest so far hasn’t been very successful. That is, until I started to read Dying for Christmas, which is an entirely different kind of holiday book. Instead of being an adorable story of love, forgiveness and sexy times, instead it’s a psychological thriller full of cruelty, abuse and juicy twist, it will keep you on the edge of your seat and turning pages as the real story becomes clear.

This book had me hooked right from the start as the heroine, Jessica’s, kidnapping ordeal is described from her point of view, this is no whodunit, you know exactly who the kidnapper is right from the start. Atleast you think you do. It is fascinating listening to the tales of each of the macabre gifts that Jessica opens, which reveal so much about Dominic, the kidnappers, past and reveal more of his frightening personality. What also keeps me reading is the possibility of her escape, she has to escape right? It becomes clear the she only has 12 days and once that final “gift” is opened, he plans to kill her.

Of course the story is way more complicated than that. I can’t say that I guessed the twist, and I feel like I may even be spoiling it even letting you know there is one in there. But, as each chapter passes the plot thickens and I found I had to find out what happened next. So, although this wasn’t the Christmas read I was expecting, it has certainly been my favourite of 2016, if you want something a little different I highly recommend you try it.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
